HNU Student Fan Shizhong Wins CORE77 Design Awards

The 2017 CORE77 Design Awards was announced in USA on June 8 local time. Fan Shizhong, graduate student of HNU School of Design, won the highest transportation award for his “Life Slide”. HNU is the only Chinese winner of the award, alongside Google, Philips, IDEO, BMW, and Alta Motors.


Fan’s “Life Slide” is a high-level rescue vehicle enlightened by slides, crane and rescue ladder. There is a folded and telescopic rescue slider on the top of the vehicle, which can be used for adjusting height and angle. The rescue slide are divided into three sections, each reverse cross. A buffer area between two sections can effectively slow down the rate of decline. It is also designed for guiders and persons who can give some help. The angle of the slide is 30°, which is proved to be absolutely safe. Insulation coatings for the aerospace on the surface of slide can resist high temperature of fire. Ventilation device on the top can protect people from smoke. It can improve the rescue efficiency and saves more lives. (source: http://designawards.core77.com/Transportation/64377/LIFE-SLIDE)
